Large Antique Spanish Rug, Country of origin / Rug Type: Spain, Circa Date: First Quarter of the 20th Century – Ferny greens, warm brick reds and posh neutral tones are juxtaposed beautifully in this masterful antique Spanish carpet. This palace-sized creation exhibits a refined allover pattern that displays recurving Persianate arabesques with elegant European flourishes. Secondary architectural pillars travel across the field along with central figures that display spiraling branches, quirky green saz leaves and neutral acanthus ornaments. Soft contrasting outlines offset the lush Persianate designs that are placed over a delicate striped ground. The elegant old-world borders display serpentine S-hooks with gothic details and mossy green colorations that are juxtaposed against a coral-tone ground. Delicate lotus blossom guard bands add an architectural detail that links the pattern to the Mediterranean world and the enduring designs of Egypt and empires of the past
